Apricots: a clear increase in production

"As of June 1, 2022, the forecast for apricot production in 2022 could reach 134,400 tons, up sharply over one year (127%). After two years of very low production, the 2022 season marks a return to yield more in line with the production potential. This year, the spring frost had significantly less impact on average than last year. The European crop is also expected to return to a level more in line with its potential. In France, the start of the marketing campaign began earlier this year with volumes increasing rapidly," says Agreste in its economic outlook published today.

Apricot production in 2022 is expected to increase by 127% compared to the 2021 harvest, which was severely affected by frost. 2022 thus marks a return to yields close to production potential.

"In 2022, the apricot crop is set up early in mid-May, with higher volumes than in previous years, and for this beginning of the season with medium sizes. The summer weather is good for the consumption of this fruit, and the demand is high. The Spanish competition is weak, as a result of the decrease in production in this country.
